    Normal?

    Well, for christmas I got a ventrata and I noticed something weird. The plant has both large main stems with 2 growth points because they took 2 cutting from each stem at different times and places. I was wondering if it is a normal effect on plants. I will get a pic. as soon as I find my connection cable.

    Don't know about normality or typcal approach to the people putting them on the market, but I wouldn't worry about it. I make my own cuttings and new nodes / growth points eventually appear.

    I don't think I understand what you're asking. Your ventrata has two growth points on the same plant?

    I don't think it's any big deal. I have that happen often when I make a cutting that has more than one node on it. For example, if a cutting has two nodes on it, often both nodes become active and the plant has two growth points simultaeously. Sometimes I let them grow that way and sell/trade/give them away or I let the growth points grow until they have 6 or so leaves on them and then I cut them and root them individually. I don't think I've ever had a ventrata cutting that didn't strike. They're uber-easy.

    I had a coccinea that activated 9 nodes on 1 stem. It'll be fine.
